    The atmosphere in Morris is very friendly, accepting, inviting and fun. The campus is quirky, and the surrounding neighborhood is small and welcoming. Though there isn't much night life in town, you quickly branch out of the realm of normal entertainment and find creative ways to have fun. Because there aren't night clubs or many other places you'd want to visit when you think of going out on a Friday night, students often seek entertainment on campus. We've got plenty of student organizations here on campus. These are groups that are run entirely by students and overseen by a faculty member of sorts. I'll name just a few off the top of my head: saddle club, fencing, Dungeons and Dragons Club, Ground Quidditch (adapted for Muggles from the Harry Potter books), dance ensemble, anime club, bad movie club, boffers, fight club, math club, swing club, paintball at UMM, organic gardening club. These are only a fraction of the organizations on campus - I haven't even touched all of the political ones! The Office of Student Affairs does a great job of making sure there are things to do on campus every week and on most week nights. There are concerts, open mic night, dances, sports events, drama, and even themed activities (like Zombie Prom, or the Yule Ball). Most of these events are priced between 0 and three dollars, so it won't break the bank to attend. Outside of school-sponsored events, there is always something to do. Many students like to walk up to the wind turbines at night and lay underneath them and watch the stars. Others enjoy playing Ground Quidditch, attending or participating in Pokemon battles in the middle of campus (yes, we do dress up like Pokemon. It's epic), or building giant snow forts each winter with the mass amounts of snow we accumulate up here in the frozen tundra of Morris, Minnesota.

    Anyone who has even heard of Morris knows that it's a small school and a small town. Despite this, there is always something going on! Whether it's a club-sponsored dance or sale, or even just hanging out in Don's Cafe with friends on a weekend, you'll rarely, if ever, run out of things to do. The only advice I can give in this category is to brace yourself for the famous Morris wind that powers our two wind turbines. Other than that, Morris is a pretty fun place to be!

    Although the town is small and there is not much stuff to do outside of campus it is still a blast at morris. The students make their own fun. People seem to be more willing to be spontaneous and adventurous than in towns where there are more malls and businesses. Also more students are involved in organizations and clubs which makes it easier to meet people and make new connections. Going to a smaller school and not a huge party school also makes it easier to get your work and studies done without so many distractions. Overall, morris is a good time! :)

    For the most part, I enjoy being a student at UMM. The transition was very hard for me, as I'm from Seattle, WA. UMM puts on many on-campus events, there are a TON of student organizations, and the close interaction with faculty all add up to make a great experience. Aside from this, trips out to the wind turbines, or driving around and exploring the prairie are all fun things to do on a nice spring/fall day.

    Morris is a great place to go to school! Granted, the town is small (aprox. 5000 people including the college), but there is always something to do. Great, friendly people, wonderful scenery (not to mention Pomme de Terre park), and good food are the hallmarks of this town. The college also does a very good job of having student activities consistent throughout the semester. If you plan on going to Morris I highly suggest you see the improv group, The Unusual Suspects. The only thing that seems to be lacking is places to go shopping. However, you'll be so busy with everything else that you won't need to! But when you decide that you want to, a 50 min. drive will take you to Alexandria or Wilmar where there are stores galore.
